Considering how sharp it looks 15k seems rather fair, if you're into that sort of thing. I've never heard of swapping in an Audi trans.

Is he asking 15K for it because it sounds like he is just stating that the drive train set-up alone cost 15K.
I don`t think an Audi 5-speed is a strong enough tranny for that motor unless you keep your foot out of it.

Yea, I guess it would depend on the tranny.
I was thinking of the old 016

Fauxrrera GT for the win!!

I actually wouldn't be too surprised at his $15k estimate. Say he spent 2k on a transaxle and getting it checked and ready to go. then another 3k on the adapter and clutch/flywheel setup for the sbc. he could easily have 5k plus into a mild 383. Then all the fabrication little bits to mount it, and the CVs and so on. I could see this snowballing fast.

That is a pretty car, not so hot on the hard top look, but real nice. One of the nicer looking kits I have seen.

But I don't know how you can have 5k into a 383, well I guess if you don't know what to buy or who to buy from. But I guess those who can't,... blank check someone else to.

But again nice looking car.

Decent rotating assembly, nice aluminum heads, fancy valve train. I'm guessing he probably paid an engine builder. Heck, paying someone to build it, 5k could be conservative. Which leads me to my next point... Why the heck are people still using the old SBC when lsx engines are so affordable and so much better?

One word - simplicity
I like the old SBC just for the fact that with a carb, if the engine doesn`t run, it can only be a handful of things.
No computer to deal with.
Plus, the parts are affordable and you can find them in almost any parts store, regardless of the size of the store.

I'm not much into kits or replicas, but that is definitely an interesting car... seems like a darned fair price, too.

I don't think he listed a price he just said lets talk. I don't see a convertible top, nice fair weather car though.

ahahaha
some people like to build engines correctly, and it's easy to spend 5k on a 383, when you use a forged crank, splayed cams, the machine work, a roller cam that is a grand right there.., heads ya, 5k goes up in smoke fast... those that build a 383 just to say they have one with junk parts and crap machine work, don't beat on them, they tend to be fairground queens..
